, cities in this country can be saved. earlier this month, detroit became the latest and greatest american city to file for bankruptcy. an $80 billion federal bailout saved the motor park of motor city. the auto industry from collapsing. right now in 2013 there will be no bailout for detroit itself. michigan governor rick snyder is not asking for one. and the white house is not offering one. it was really surprising republican members of the senate started trying to block a bailout of detroit. this thing that does not exist, no bailout, not only for detroit, but for any american city. no federal funding of any kind for any struggling city anywhere ever. unless they're hit by a natural disaster. because, you know, hurricanes, they have a tendency to hit the sponsor of another measure's home state with regular frequency. the first no bailout no money of any kind amendment did not passion, it was defeated on a close party line vote. its sponsor tweeted, if you weren't worried about the federal government bailing out municipalities like detroit now, you should be. be afraid of this thing that

from terry. why are so few commentators outraged about the conservative destruction of detroit? that would be everybody. for the life of me, i don't know. i think a philosophy of how people do their job. this is just my philosophy. this is what i believe in. i don't think that you do a story and say, oh, well, we've covered that. let's get on to the next one. i've always been one who believes that you do a story and you get into the different facets of the story. and maybe others don't view it that way. where are the people? what's the back story? what's the ramifications? what's the money? where is the political push coming from? there are so many facets to the detroit story, stealing an election, cirqcumventing local elections. there is so much there. i don't know how i could do that story justice the way it is affecting p.eople's lives and hw conservative states are run and when conservatives get power. how do you do that in one show? i don't know. i can't speak for anyone else. but i made a commitment to stay on the detroit story because i think it is a model for destructio
are incorrect. next up, true or false, the city of detroit is holding an important election tomorrow for the top leadership of that great american city. is that true or is that false? that is false. the city of detroit is holding an election tomorrow but it is pointless because there is no democracy in detroit anymore. the guy on the left of your screen here is dave bing who is the mayor of detroit elected by the people in 2009. he's not running again for the position and i think i know why. the guy on the right is kevin ohr, detroit's emergency manager, he was never elected to his position, he was put in place by michigan's governor. he makes 75% more than the governor makes. whatever he wants, detroit does because he is the emergency manager not the elected leader and emergency managers get to run that city now, not the people who get elected. so tomorrow we'll go through the motions, more than a than a doz will be running in a primary to become detroit's next powerless figurehead mayor who can't do anything. the top two finishers regardless of party will move on to the general election in nov

, in washington, d.c., in st. louis, in kansas city, in detroit, in flint, michigan, and other areas around this -- fast food workers. they were people who work in burger king, mcdonald's, popeye, they are the ones who give you the hamburgers and the french fries. what they are saying is workers all over this country, they cannot make it on $7.25 an hour, $7.50 an hour. often they are unable to get 40 hours of work and in most cases they get no or very limited benefits. all over the country, these workers, often young people, are walking out of their establishments, their fast-food places and are educating the consumers about the economic injustice taking place in these fast-food establishments. what they are saying is we need to raise the minimum wage in this country, that american workers cannot exist on $7.25 an hour which is the national minimum wage now or $8 an hour or $9 an hour. my own view is that the very least we should be raising the minimum wage to $10 an hour. just do the arithmetic. if somebody is making $7.25 an hour and if they are lucky enough to be getting 40 hours a week

if you heard this but detroit announced bankruptcy today. that is the top story today. so the goal is to have the cities find a way to grab ahold of that suburban tax money and bring it into the city. so the bottom line is that barack obama wants to redistribute the wealth of america's suburbs to the city. to see the radical file community organizers who mentored and trained barack obama all those years ago in chicago they really didn't like the suburbs. in fact their ultimate goal was literally to abolish the suburbs. why were obama's radical organizing mentors so upset about the suburbs? they blamed the suburbs for the problems of the city because when people move out to the suburbs, they take their tax money with them. so obama's radical organizers put on their thinking caps and came up with a strategy for the economic and political independence of america. and as the strategies came, a movement called the regional equity movement, the regional equity movement sometimes is just called regionalism for short. it goes under different names and you might have also heard of the idea

on to larence. caller: i have a question. i am a city employee. the city of detroit is under an emergency manager. right now the emergency manager is in federal court to file a ankruptcy for detroit. what he wants to do is to stop paying into our pension ystem. our pension system is protected by the michigan onstitution. what do you see happening to our pension if the federal bankruptcy allows them to stop paying into our pension? guest: that is a difficult legal question. there are a lot of people who have worked their entire lives believing their pension would be here for them. the issue is that federal law is supreme to state law. if federal law is properly invoked, then the michigan constitution does not have anything to say about it. it is not clear whether detroit properly file that petition. the michigan constitution says a municipality cannot do anything that would diminish the tensions of the employees. filing a bankruptcy petition can be interpreted as something that would diminish their ensions. so the argument that's very plausible is the petition itself is no good. the federa
